People often treat themselves to a limousine ride to celebrate various special occasions, such as weddings, birthdays, prom, and more. Although a limousine can offer a sort of status and luxury, the sheer size and weight of a limo can make it susceptible to certain kinds of crashes. Just like any other type of automobile accident, limousine accidents can lead to serious or life-threatening injuries for the driver, the limousine passengers, other motorists, and pedestrians.

In 2018, all 18 people in an SUV limo and two pedestrians were killed when a limousine crashed in Schoharie, New York. The crash killed the most people in a transportation-related accident in almost a decade. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced after the crash that the limousine failed inspection the month before and the driver lacked the proper commercial license that would have permitted him to drive the vehicle.

The limousine service operator was charged with criminally negligent homicide and according to the state police, Nauman Hussain allegedly hired a driver who shouldn’t have been behind the vehicle of such car. Additionally, the vehicle shouldn’t have been driven after inspectors allegedly deemed it “unserviceable.” In response to the crash, Governor Cuomo passed comprehensive safety reforms for limousines and large passenger vehicles.

FAQs about Limousine Accidents

What should I do if I am involved in a limo accident?

First and foremost, you should check to see if you or anyone else is seriously injured and call the police for help. Insist on a full medical evaluation of injuries, including tests for head, back, and spinal injuries.

You should get the information of everyone involved, including their full name, addresses, phone numbers, license plate numbers, general descriptions of each vehicle, insurance information, and driver’s license information. Try to get as much information as possible to show that you are not liable for the accident, such as photographs of the scene and testimonies from witnesses.

Should I see a doctor after the accident, even if I do not think I’m seriously injured?

You should absolutely visit a doctor after being in any type of accident. While you may feel like the injuries are minor or not there, you could have injuries that may become serious if not treated. It’s better to take precautions when dealing with your health. Seeing a doctor will also create medical documents that can serve as evidence if you do decide to peruse legal action.

How much compensation am I entitled to?

No two claims are the same. How much you may receive in damages depends on a variety of factors, such as the sum cost of your injuries. The effects of an injury also vary from person to person. Once our lawyers get all of the necessary information from you, we will evaluate your case tailored to your needs. We provide personalized representation to our clients and make sure to keep them informed about any updates in their case.

How much time to do I have to file a claim?

If you were hurt by a vehicle that is owned or operated by a district or government entity, in many states, there is only a brief period—sometimes less than 60 days—in which a claimant can sue a government body who may be responsible for an accident.

If you are pursuing a personal injury claim that is not against a government body, under Connecticut law, you must file a personal injury or property damage claim within two years of the date of the accident. If someone suffers a wrongful death, the two-year limit starts on the date of the victim’s death from their injuries.

You should reach out to an attorney sooner, rather than later, in order to have plenty of time to build a strong case. Our attorneys are knowledgeable about the entire process, including state, local, and national transportation laws.
